Phil Jones Goes Full Phil Jones, Gives Away Penalty In FA Cup Final
Phil Jones went full Phil Jones in the FA Cup final, bringing down Eden Hazard to give away a penalty 21 minutes in the game at Wembley.
The diminutive Belgian found himself racing clear in the box and Jones was never getting anywhere near him.
In an attempt to win the ball from behind, the England defender mistimed his challenge and Michael Oliver had no choice but to point to the spot.
Jones, despite being last man, was only shown a yellow card for his yellow card and was very fortunate to have not been given his marching orders.
Twitter exploded with reaction over the latest instance of Phil Jones doing Phil Jones things:
The date is the 28th June 2018. England are holding Belgium to a goalless draw in Kaliningrad. Eden Hazard races through and only one man can stop him. Unfortunately that man is Phil Jones.- Jaquob Crooke (@_JaquobCrooke) May 19, 2018
I'd love to know what drug Gareth Southgate was on when he decided to put Phil Jones in the world cup squad

Really need a behind-goal camera angle there to appreciate the full spectrum of facial expressions that Phil Jones probably went through trying to catch up with Hazard #FACupFinal

Phil Jones hauls down Eden Hazard when he's about to go through on goal, and he just gets a yellow card. He can't even get sent off properly.

Phil Jones going to England ahead of Chris Smalling uno. Shambles

How is this man starting over Eric Bailly for Manchester United, and more importantly how has he made England's World Cup squad?
Hazard, meanwhile, sent David De Gea the wrong way with his penalty, coolly dispatching his spot-kick to open the scoring.
